Sometimes clients do not show up for their scheduled therapy session. Usually when this happens I write notes or file notes or some other administrative thing. Yesterday a client did not show up and the note writing was a bit out of control so I took a quick break and did the art that I was going to have my client do! We were going to do coffee filter mandalas!! I love this project - I've probably told you about it before. Anyways... you decorate a coffee filter with watercolors or with water soluble markers and then add water to it. They turn out something like this (at least mine did):
And if you put a paper under it, you get two pieces of art:
Isn't that AWESOME?
It was only a short 10 minute break but I REALLY enjoyed it. I encourage you to try this!! If you have kids or art crafty you probably already have both materials that you need. Have fun!!
